My Waterfox, latest version, running on Windows 7, got infected by the highly irritating Search.Findwide virus. Solutions to this recommended for Firefox include (a) uninstalling the virus (done!) and b) resetting Firefox.

However the screenshots showing the reset function in Firefox are not paralleled in Waterfox. How to reset Waterfox, and thus stop Findwide hijacking my screen?

I have tried this: Download and use the search reset addon.

It is a restartless addon, it installs resets some search related etc. settings to default,and then unistalls itself.
From https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/searchreset/

But it doesn't work for me.
